Tutorial: Trendy Korean lip makeup

Korean makeup is known for its softness, soft tones and youthful glow. Two of the biggest Korean lip makeup trends at the moment are definitely the so-called Gradient Lip and Cherry Lip makeup. Creating these is not difficult at all, grab easy tips and our product recommendations below!


Gradient lip makeup

One of the most popular Korean makeup styles is the gradient lip makeup, which creates a soft and natural ombre color on your lips. This makes the lips look softer and fuller. You can also play with different color combinations!

Prepare your lips

The first step is to make sure your lips are moisturized and soft. If necessary, exfoliate your lips first, then apply a lip balm or lip mask and let it absorb for a while. If necessary, pat off the excess before starting to apply the makeup.


Add lip liner

If you want, start by lightly lining your lips with a suitable shade and soften the line with your fingertip or a brush. As a rule, Koreans don't have much of a habit of using lines on their lips, but they make it easy to emphasize the shape of the lips as desired.

Apply lipstick, gloss or tint

Choose two different shades of lipstick, tint or gloss according to your taste; one darker and one lighter. Start by applying a lighter shade to the outer edges of your lips. You can use a brush or apply the product directly from the stick.

Fade the colors

After the lighter shade is applied, take the darker shade and apply it to the center of the lips. Use your fingertips or a small brush to blend the lighter shade towards the edges of the lips. This creates a soft color difference and gradient for your lips.


Add shine

If you want more shine and fullness to your lips, you can add a little bit of clear lip gloss on top of the shades. The gloss helps emphasize the gradient effect and makes the lips appear even more plump.

Cherry Lips

The Korean "cherry lips" can refer not only to the shape of the lips that can be achieved with cosmetic procedures, but the same effect can also be created with make-up. The cherry lips make-up trend creates an attractive, softly contoured, fresh and youthful look on the lips, and it's easy to create yourself. Here's an easy guide to creating perfect cherry lips!


Prepare your lips

The first step towards cherry lips is to make sure your lips are soft and moisturized. Use a lip scrub to remove dead skin cells, then apply a moisturizing lip balm or lip mask . If necessary, pat off the excess before applying makeup.


Line your lips

Apply the lip liner just above the natural line of the lips and soften the line considerably. The goal is that the border of the lips is not clearly drawn, but soft and blurred. [Unleashia] Oh! Happy Day Lip Pencil is specifically designed to be easily faded and is perfect for Cherry Lips make-up.

Apply lipstick or tint

Choose your desired lip tint or lipstick shade. Apply the shade evenly on the lips, starting from the center of the lips and moving outwards. Soften the shade towards the edges of the lips to create a "blurred" look.
